Asthma sufferers have been told for years to take their medicine on a schedule-- not just when symptoms occur.
But a new study finds that patients with mild asthma who regularly inhaled Albuterol, faired no better than those who took it only when they had symptoms.
Researchers in the U.S. and Finland say they have come up with a vaccine against the most common cause of childhood diarrhea.
The vaccine is aimed at rotavirus--which causes fever, diarrhea and vomiting in babies. More than three million children in the U.S. get sick with rotavirus each year.
Accident victims rushed to hospitals around the country may soon be receiving artificial blood instead of human blood.
Researchers are cautiously optimistic about blood substitutes though they do not expect they will ever completely replace the real thing.
Artificial blood can stay fresh for up to a year while human blood lasts only a few weeks after donation.
Blood substitutes are also free of infectious diseases like AIDS--though experts say the U.S. blood supply is extremely safe.))
